Tulip picking has been on my bucket list for a while.  We just always seemed to miss the season.  The weekends just get so busy during the school year with soccer and everything else.  I was determined to make it happen this year and was psyched to find our favorite farm had tulips.  When I saw they were starting the season before we go back to school next week, I knew it was meant to be.  Don't you love those moments when the stars align?
Were the fields fully in bloom? No.  It's definitely early in the season here.  It was a beautiful morning though and we had lots to choose from.

I am definitely not ready to go back to school next week.  Planning to enjoy as much outside time as possible this weekend.

Enjoy this week's round up!

1.  New books :: Are you struggling to find something good to read?  I've been in a bit of a reading slump lately myself.  I have managed to reverse it this week though, so I'll be combining my winter and spring reading post.  This is a really good list of thriller books.  I've read a few on this list.  I would definitely recommend "The Last Thing He Told Me".

2.  Chocolate Ice Cream:: I came across this article and was instantly captivated.  Testing different brands of chocolate ice cream to find the best tasting one is definitely something I'm up for.  I do not recognize the dairy free brand here but I'll be looking out for it!

3.  Sustainable beauty :: I'm thinking more and more about sustainable beauty.  It's not just about how the product works any more.  I'm looking for the whole package.  I worry about the safety and sourcing of the ingredients and whether the packaging is recyclable.

4.  Mother's Day gift ideas :: Have you seen the gift kits for Mom at Target?  I have my eye on the baker's kit and the plant parent gift kit.

5.  Clean body care :: Necessaire recently launched a limited edition Eucalyptus Edit body care setIt contains four full-sized body treatments with a functional blend of essential oils that are specifically tailored to nurture your skin, because our body deserves as much as much as our face.  This is another great option to pamper Mom!
